    FWIW, I genuinely prefer that we have some companies making money in a closed-source way on top of our technologies. It means that XMPP isn't just a second-rate thing that Open Source can use because it has to - it's the first chocie for many cases.

    David Cridland, I wasn't involving proprietary software in my thinking above, at all. Just that free software is doomed with NIH, or simply rewriting for educational purposes, but then it becomes semi-viable and some people start to use it and..

  262. pep.

    I think we've got enough diversity in servers

  263. pep.

    companies can rewrite their own stack if they want that's not my money

  264. pep.

    In the free software world I could get contributors instead, if people weren't rewriting their own, for example.

    edhelas, since it applies to ssrc, shouldn’t it go in the XEP-0339 container?

  271. Link Mauve

    And thus no new XEP required.

  272. pdurbin has joined

  273. edhelas

    not sure it applies to ssrc

  347. ralphm

    Welcome new Board! And anyone from the floor!

  348. ralphm

    Who do we have today?

  349. Seve is here!

  350. Guus


  351. ralphm

    MattJ, pep. ?

  352. MattJ


  353. Guus

    pep. ?

  354. Guus

    (additional notification thingy attached)

  355. ralphm

    Hope that pep. will join us soonish.

  356. ralphm

    In any case, my primary point is the appointment of the Officers of the Corporation.

  357. Guus

    I have nothing to add - Peter suggested we'd look into the savedotorg.org thingy (which I added to Trello)

  358. ralphm


  359. ralphm

    1. Minute taker

  360. nyco


  361. Guus

    Also, given that pep. is not here - we might want to check if this day/time is still good for everyone

  362. nyco

    I'll do that :)

  363. ralphm

    Thanks nyco!

  364. Guus

    Thanks nyco

  365. ralphm

    Guus: indeed

  366. ralphm

    2. Election Results

  367. ralphm

    As we've seen, our kind Secretary announced the results of the new Board and Council. I'd like to take the opportunity to say thanks to nyco for his work on Board in the previous term!

  368. ralphm

    And welcome pep. as new Director!

  369. Guus


  370. nyco

    congrats pep.! :)

  371. ralphm

    Also, I understand that jonas’ is the new Chair of Council, and as such will liason with us, and should have been included in the Board mailing list.

  372. Guus

    _should have_ - did we check?

  373. Guus

    I'm not even sure who manages the list

  374. Guus

    iteam? secretary?

  375. ralphm

    I had a conversaion with David Cridland and he mentioned this in passing. I'm sure MattJ can verify

  376. nyco

    FYI, I'm out of the list, so someone did something

  377. ralphm

    3. Appointment of Officers

  378. nyco

    might mean the right things are done

  379. Guus


  380. ralphm

    According to our bylaws, the corporation has 4 named Officers (and we didn't name others outside of the bylaws AFAIK).

  381. David Cridland

    jonas’ was duly elected Chair of the XMPP Council indeed.

  382. MattJ

    I can check after the meeting - traditionally Alex updates the lists when necessary, but I don't know if that has included updating it for the Council chair, I think that's been done by $someone on Board

  383. ralphm

    These are: Chair, Executive Director, Secretary, and Threasurer.

  384. ralphm

    Each officer shall hold office for a period of one year or until his or her successor is elected and qualified or until his or her earlier resignation or removal.

  385. ralphm

    So we should (re)appoint our Officers.

  386. ralphm

    I suggest we ask Alex and Peter if they'd like to add another year to their respective roles as Secretary and Treasurer.

  387. Alex

    I volunteer again

  388. ralphm

    Then I move Alex gets reappointed as Secretary.

  389. ralphm


  390. Guus


  391. ralphm

    (Thanks Alex!)

  392. MattJ


  393. Seve


  394. nyco

    congrats Alex for your election! :)

  395. ralphm

    Motion carries! Yay!

  396. ralphm

    I'll send out an e-mail to Peter

  397. Guus

    Can someone remind me what we did last year wrt ED?

  398. Guus

    Peter resigned. We didn't appoint anyone else.

  399. MattJ

    Waving of hands?

  400. Guus

    there was discussion.

  401. ralphm

    For Executive Director, we've had a vacancy since Peter stepped down, and the previous Board has chosen to not actively look to fill that vacancy.

  402. Guus

    I don't recall the outcome.

  403. UṣL has left

  404. ralphm

    This means that in practice, the Executive Committee is just our Chair.

  405. Guus

    Do we want to put out a call for candidates?

  406. Guus

    Whch probably should come with a job description

  407. MattJ

    which we failed at last time

  408. ralphm

    The discussion last year suggested we didn't have an immediate need for this role to be filled, and I don't think that situation has changed. I'd be happy to have that discussion again, but not in this meeting, probably.

  409. Seve

    Did we have the need to fulfill the position?

  410. MattJ

    There is the description in the byelaws, and there is the reality that when Peter acted as ED, he basically did anything that needed doing

  411. Seve

    What ralphm said

  412. Guus

    ok, let's table it, to use a confusing term to Brits and Americans.

  413. ralphm


  414. ralphm

    Noted. That leaves the Chair.

  415. ralphm

    It is too bad that pep. isn't here today, and I'm happy to carry this over to next week, if needed.

  416. MattJ

    I think we have done that previously when we didn't have full attendance

  417. ralphm

    However, I am willing to stand again.

  418. ralphm

    MattJ, right.

  419. Guus

    I have no idea if pep. intends to stand

  420. ralphm

    Ok, let's take that to next week then.

    4. ISOC's sale of PIR to Ethos

  423. strypey has joined

  424. ralphm

    This is about the .org registry.

  425. ralphm

    The XSF has been a long time holder of .org domains, including jabber.org and xmpp.org.

  426. ralphm

    I've try to read all the discussions around it, but found it hard to take a position. At least for now.

  427. ralphm

    Any opinions?

  428. Guus

    On the one hand, I'm personally not thinking that this has the impact that some make it out to have.

  429. MattJ

    I haven't done extensive research into it, but I feel like I understand the issue enough - if you have followed discussions, are there particular reasons you're not keen on taking a position?

  430. calvin has joined

  431. nyco

    if this helps: on linuxfr.org we think that the promise is broken, so we sent the email also we are considering buying several years of .org and we might consider the website name change

  432. Guus

    On the other hand, as it's Peter that brought this up, I'm inclined to believe that there's more to this than I now realize - and since it's Peter, I'm willing to accept that this might be a suitable topic for the XSF to speak out against.

  433. Seve

    I haven't been able to catch up with the topic, I'll try to do it during the weekend.

  434. ralphm

    I'm not sure if we have enough information to take a position on it, and what that position should be.

  435. Chobbes has joined

  436. ralphm

    I haven't talked to Peter myself, but did have a chat with dwd.

  437. nyco

    btw, CommTeam hat on: should I include this info in the next newsletter? (that I close tomorrow)

  438. ralphm

    nyco, were we to decide on a statement, then yes

  439. SERGE90 has joined

  440. nyco


  441. Guus

    If we're not yet ready to take a position, we shouldn't communicate anything.

  442. Guus


  443. nyco


  444. David Cridland

    FWIW, I know a number of people to some degree on the ISOC Board, and I find it hard to believe it's the clear-cut case of Evil that it's being presented as.

  445. Guus

    So, we kick this to next week, giving us time to read up more?

  446. serge90 has joined

  447. serge90 has left

  452. ralphm

    dwd crafted this piece of text which I would be willing to issue, but nothing beyond: "The XMPP Standards Foundation is a long-term holder of a ".org" domain, and has noted the comments from the community over ISOC's sale of PIR to Ethos with some concern. At this time, the information is limited, and the XSF, while refraining from any position over the matter, will continue to pay close attention to the situation as more information emerges."

  453. ralphm

    I don't think we have to involve the membership at this point.

  454. Guus

    That's very loudly saying that you're not saying anything.

  455. ralphm

    Yes, it says: we're paying attention

  456. Zash

    "We're watching you"

  457. MattJ

    I'm not sure I see the point, but wouldn't object to it

  458. Guus

    Yeah, but given that 4 out of 5 directors didn't even read up... are we (paying attention)?

  459. MattJ

    if others feel it's valuable

  460. Guus

    sorry, 3 out of 5

  461. Guus

    unsure what pep did.

    As far as I can tell the problems are all centred around things that *may* potentially happen in the future. I also don't see how ISOC are better stewards of .org if they (unanimously) want this transaction to proceed

  636. debacle

    Too bad, I don't have any money in Ethos Capital. They are expected to increase .org prices by 10 % per year. Which is not so much, that anybody would move away from it. But it is much higher than the 3.5 % global inflation rate. .org sells at 10 USD now. In then years that will be 25.94 USD instead of 14.10 USD, 84 % higher than inflation suggests! I wasn't around when Gutenberg invented printing and now I'm out, when Ethos Capital reinvented printing money :-)

  651. waqas

    How much is creating a new TLD these days? Wasn't it on the order of $100k?

  652. jonas’


  653. waqas

    I'm curious how much the total cost is, if you take any required infrastructure and such into account

  654. waqas

    200k is well within 'moderately well paid individual' range

  655. Zash

    Serving the zone and managing a way to update it?

  656. waqas

    I'm curious if there are any requirements like you must have a registered org of at least this size, etc

  657. Zash

    waqas: On the registrar? Registry?

  658. Zash

    Oh, creating a new one?

  659. waqas

    Yes, like .zash

  660. !XSF_Martin

    Then you can have hail.zash

  661. Zash

    I don't have 2 MSEK to drop on that

  662. pep.

    Zash, you're missing the point of investments! Everybody is going to love it you have a chance to make a lot of money

  663. Zash

    You mean like investing some potatoes now and getting more potatoes later?

  664. pep.


  665. lovetox

    .org is though one of the top TLD

  666. lovetox

    most country-code TLDs, will not even go into the millions

  667. lovetox

    for example .ru has 5.7 million domains registered
